When our client Emma Milne was approached to reconfigure and renovate a four storey Victorian town house on the outskirts of Hove, she knew the less-is-more approach would work well here.

In 2016 the owners of Scenario Architecture, Maya and Ran, were looking to convert and extend a Victorian terraced house in Stoke Newington for their own family.
